Elevation: 8,618 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Diamond Ridge Peak is the highest point on Diamond Ridge. It sits above Deep Lake on Diamond Ridge. Diamond Ridge runs from Peak 8552 northeast to a peak identified by the USGS as Diamond Rock. Diamond Ridge is located northeast of Upper Payette Lake on the East Side of the paved Warren Wagon Road which leaves McCall on the West Side of Payette Lake.
The best access at this point in time is to follow Warren Wagon Road north for 21.1 miles and then turn east (right) onto FS-431 and follow this decent dirt road to its end. A fair trail leaves the East End of the parking lot and climbs roughly 750 vertical feet in a mile to the base of the ridge at Deep Lake. Be forewarned that this area was heavily burned and, in places, cross-country travel requires crossing acres of downed trees. USGS Victor Peak
Diamond Ridge Peak can be climbed from Deep Lake. I climbed this peak as part of a traverse of the ridge with John Platt in 2015. For additional details, see my Diamond Ridge Traverse page and John’s trip report.
